If Elon Musk and Tesla live up to their promises, it shouldn’t be more than a couple of years before we start seeing Cybertrucks on the street. But if you don’t have the money or the patience for the real deal, you can at least have a miniature Cybertruck for your desktop.
Thanks to the miracle of engineering that is 3D printing, and the efforts of Thingiverse contributor aaskedall, you can download the files to print a model of the Tesla Cybertruck right this minute. The design looks like a reasonably accurate representation of Tesla’s angular electric truck of the future, and shouldn’t take very long to print given its relatively simple shapes. The model comes in seven parts – one for the body and chassis, two axles, and four wheels wrapped in chunky tires.
Unless you have a dual extruder 3D printer and take the time to color code the STL files, you’ll need to print it and paint it yourself to match the stainless steel body and black trim of the real truck. Now I want to see the guys with the world’s largest 3D printer render a life-size model of this thing.
